EBarnacle BS: How we elect people (5) RE: BS: How we elect people 30 May 19

In this case, BS stands for Blood Sport.

Israel's recent election is showing up a weakness of [or is it a strength of] the Parliamentary system. Netanyahu's party, despite having a plurality of votes has not been able to form a majority coalition by a deadline so the entire election will have to be done over again very shortly. It seems that one party refused to sign on to give them a governing majority.

Here in the US, we seem to be approaching a Parliamentary system in that the "two party" system is actually a coalition on each side, with each subgroup aligning with the caucus that seems least noxious to them.

At least one state is considering proportional voting which, as noted, allows defeat to be snatched from the jaws of victory.
